I have a few books that were requested from me, they are listed under the wish list hold tab.  I just checked and there are a ton of some of these books. Why are they under the wish list tab????

Can you give an example?  It's probably just  a glitch of some kind.

If it was just one, I would say maybe it was WL at some point and someone had their WL (or just that book) on hold for a long time and just took it off and yours was on top. (I once had my shelf & WL on hold for 6months due to a cross country military move and when I took my account off vacation I had a couple of dozen books from my WL that immediately went on WL hold for me).  But this seems unlikely to happen that many times on one person's bookshelf.

9 isn't that many copies.  It was probably WL a very short time ago and someone had it on hold.

Yup, someone probably had it on their Wish List on Hold and just now took it off of hold to get it. I have a few like that, later in a series that I'm not ready for. They go to available while I have the hold on, but I don't want to get it yet and don't want to mess with moving it to my Reminder List so I leave them on my Wish List on Hold until I want them even though there isn't a WL line for them anymore. 

Its interesting that you have more than one at a time in that situation that aren't Held for the same member.

If someone did have the book on hold, the request should have gone to person who had it listed first right??  I just listed the book the same day it was requested.  Don't matter if she takes it I will mail it LOL.  Just wondering how it should work

If the requestor is a gold key member, then the request goes to the closest reliable sender. That might be you!

I'm certain the book you've posted here will be a heavily traded book. So that one will go in and out of WL and it could easily have more than 10 copies posted in a day so your could end up being the first on in line when this person requested it and still have 9 copies get posted behind you.

We can guess all we want, but the only way to know for certain is to ask the Team so if you really need to know why they ended up that way you can send in Feedback.
